The pupils often fail to understand why truths should be proved that seem quite evident without proof, the proofs often appearing to be excessively complicated and cumbersome. It sometimes happens, too, that a seemingly clear and convincing proof turns out, upon closer scrutiny, to be incorrect. This booklet was written with the aim of helping pupils clear up the following points: 1. What is proof? 2. What purpose does a proof serve? 3. What form should a proof take? 4. What may be accepted...

The main purpose of this book is to present various methods of approximate solution of equations. Their practical value is beyond doubt, but still little attention is paid to them either at school or a college and so someone who has passed a college level higher mathematics course usually has difficulty in solving a transcendental equation of the simplest type. Not only engineers need to solve equations, but also technicians, production technologists and people in other professions as well. It...

This is a book about astronomical observations of the night sky. At an elementary level it tells about unusual stars, star clusters and nebulae. There are stories of how the constellations originated, and the sights of each one arc explained. In short, this is a beginner’s guide to the constellations. It is an observational ’guide so that reading the text should always be accompanied by night-time observations of the starry sky. (From the front jacket.) Cleaned copy from...

This book has been written mainly for high school students, but it will also be helpful to anyone studying on their own whose mathematical education is confined to high school mathematics. The book is based on a lecture I gave to Moscow schoolchildren of grades 7 and 8 (13 and 14 years old). In preparing the lecture for publication I expanded the material,while at the same time trying not to make the treatment any less accessible. The most substantial addition is Section 13 on the ellipse,...

The study of microprocesses has brought to light previously unknown features of physical experimentation which are of considerable philosophical significance. The revision of ideas resulting from the penetration into the world of elementary particles has also raised the problem of the role of visualization and models in the cognition of deep levels of reality. Refinement of the methods of theoretical physics in the course of research into microprocesses has led to the discovery of an unexpected...
